This varies from person to person. By waxing the hair will grow back slower, softer and sparser than shaving. However in order to maintain the smooth feel it is recommended that waxing is done every 4 to 5 weeks.For the best long term results you will need between 3 and 4 treatments each spaced ideally 4 weeks apart. You may see a noticeable increase in hair re-growth after your 3rd treatment – this is a good sign as it shows the hair is getting into a regular growth pattern and each of your hairs is now growing at the same time and pace. As a result of your hair re-growth patterns becoming aligned over time, the result of each waxing treatment is a smoother finish and a longer lasting smoothness to the skin. Oh so important in those intimate areas. If it is your first ever wax or you have been shaving before, you may notice hairs appearing sooner than you anticipated. This is because hairs grow at different speeds and some hair may not have quite broken through the skin at the time of your waxing treatment. After the 4th regular waxing treatment we can then reassess the situation and discuss the ideal treatment plan to maintain the best results. Please try not to shave, tweeze or use depilatory products between your waxing appointments as this can result in the treatment not being as successful as I or indeed you would like.
